بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

1.

يُسَبِّحُ لِلَّهِ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ

Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare the Praises and Glory of Allah --

ٱلۡمَلِكِ ٱلۡقُدُّوسِ ٱلۡعَزِيزِ ٱلۡحَكِيمِ   

-    the Sovereign,

-    the Holy One,

-    the Exalted in Might,

-    the Wise.

2.

هُوَ ٱلَّذِى بَعَثَ فِى ٱلۡأُمِّيِّـۧنَ رَسُولاً۬ مِّنۡہُمۡ

It is He Who has sent amongst the Unlettered a messenger from among themselves,

يَتۡلُواْ عَلَيۡہِمۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ وَيُزَكِّيہِمۡ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ وَٱلۡحِكۡمَةَ

-    to rehearse to them His Signs,

-    to sanctify them,

-    and to instruct them in Scripture and Wisdom --

وَإِن كَانُواْ مِن قَبۡلُ لَفِى ضَلَـٰلٍ۬ مُّبِينٍ۬   

although they had been, before, in manifest error --

3.

وَءَاخَرِينَ مِنۡہُمۡ لَمَّا يَلۡحَقُواْ بِہِمۡ‌ۚ

As well as (to confer all these benefits upon) others of them, who have not already joined them:

وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡحَكِيمُ   

and He is Exalted in Might, Wise.

4.

ذَٲلِكَ فَضۡلُ ٱللَّهِ يُؤۡتِيهِ مَن يَشَآءُ‌ۚ

Such is the Bounty of Allah, which He bestows on whom He will:

وَٱللَّهُ ذُو ٱلۡفَضۡلِ ٱلۡعَظِيمِ   

and Allah is the Lord of the highest bounty.

5.

مَثَلُ ٱلَّذِينَ حُمِّلُواْ ٱلتَّوۡرَٮٰةَ ثُمَّ لَمۡ يَحۡمِلُوهَا كَمَثَلِ ٱلۡحِمَارِ يَحۡمِلُ أَسۡفَارَۢا‌ۚ

The similitude of those who were charged with the (obligations of the) Mosaic Law, but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of a donkey which carries huge tomes (but understands them not).

بِئۡسَ مَثَلُ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَذَّبُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ

Evil is the similitude of people who falsify the Signs of Allah:

وَٱللَّهُ لَا يَہۡدِى ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ 

and Allah guides not people who do wrong.

6.

قُلۡ يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ هَادُوٓاْ إِن زَعَمۡتُمۡ أَنَّكُمۡ أَوۡلِيَآءُ لِلَّهِ مِن دُونِ ٱلنَّاسِ

Say:

"O ye that stand on Judaism! if ye think that ye are friends to Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men,

فَتَمَنَّوُاْ ٱلۡمَوۡتَ إِن كُنتُمۡ صَـٰدِقِينَ   

then express your desire for Death, if ye are truthful!"

7.

وَلَا يَتَمَنَّوۡنَهُ ۥۤ أَبَدَۢا بِمَا قَدَّمَتۡ أَيۡدِيهِمۡ‌ۚ

But never will they express their desire (for Death), because of the (deeds) their hands have sent on before them!

وَٱللَّهُ عَلِيمُۢ بِٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ   

And Allah knows well those that do wrong!

8.

قُلۡ إِنَّ ٱلۡمَوۡتَ ٱلَّذِى تَفِرُّونَ مِنۡهُ فَإِنَّهُ ۥ مُلَـٰقِيڪُمۡ‌ۖ

Say:

"The Death from which ye flee will truly overtake you:

ثُمَّ تُرَدُّونَ إِلَىٰ عَـٰلِمِ ٱلۡغَيۡبِ وَٱلشَّهَـٰدَةِ فَيُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُونَ   

then will ye be sent back to the Knower of things secret and open: and He will tell you (the truth of) the things that ye did!"

9.

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ إِذَا نُودِىَ لِلصَّلَوٰةِ مِن يَوۡمِ ٱلۡجُمُعَةِ فَٱسۡعَوۡاْ إِلَىٰ ذِكۡرِ ٱللَّهِ وَذَرُواْ ٱلۡبَيۡعَ‌ۚ

O ye who believe!

when the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and traffic):

ذَٲلِكُمۡ خَيۡرٌ۬ لَّكُمۡ إِن كُنتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُونَ   

that is best for you if ye but knew!

10.

فَإِذَا قُضِيَتِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةُ فَٱنتَشِرُواْ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَٱبۡتَغُواْ مِن فَضۡلِ ٱللَّهِ

And when the Prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah:

وَٱذۡكُرُواْ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرً۬ا لَّعَلَّكُمۡ تُفۡلِحُونَ 

and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): that ye may prosper.

11.

وَإِذَا رَأَوۡاْ تِجَـٰرَةً أَوۡ لَهۡوًا ٱنفَضُّوٓاْ إِلَيۡہَا وَتَرَكُوكَ قَآٮِٕمً۬ا‌ۚ

But when they see some bargain or some amusement, they disperse headlong to it, and leave thee standing.

قُلۡ مَا عِندَ ٱللَّهِ خَيۡرٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱللَّهۡوِ وَمِنَ ٱلتِّجَـٰرَةِ‌ۚ

Say:

"The (blessing) from the Presence of Allah is better than any amusement or bargain!

وَٱللَّهُ خَيۡرُ ٱلرَّٲزِقِينَ 

And Allah is the Best to provide (for all needs)."
